​Tow The Line

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Roll On, Ruby (1973).

He wears great face when you say your grace
Mama's gonna put you in your place
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?
And my little brother likes a whole lotta fun
Buttoned his lip but it came undone
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?

Now shoelace and a paperchase
Somebody else gonna take your place
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?
And my grandfather said don't hide your head
And mama's gonna put you in your bed
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?

Safe place when you say your grace
Mama's gonna put you in your place
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?
My little brother likes a whole lotta fun
Buttoned his lip but it came undone
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?

Now shoelace and a paperchase
Somebody else gonna take your place
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?
My grandfather said don't hide your head
Mama's gonna put you in your bed
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?
Don't you know you've gotta tow the line?
